>> okay search excited about the new cruise terminal but i don't know if questioner excited about the cost. definitely excited about the new cruise terminal. and just trying to understand the numbers and looking at the proms limits for phase two and the change between what was approved and what is being requested today is free much million? is 43 million and i know you discuss the may be 11 million? i don't know if we discussed the whole 43 million and where the costs are and why it's so much. okay. >> i'll take up the 43.254 million is the estimate for the phase two budget. i think why the costs are so high,
i would ask kim to give more details, i think that it's a combination of the large site, the cost of reconstruction, and the maritime improves required for the operation and then having many other parts including security a very robust security program, major public access improvemnt and is a two and-a-half acre park and it's all of those thing that get you a hundred and senior and 11 million-dollar project and so that is my answer for why it's so expensive. >> okay so am i reading this bronchbecause the request is for one 25 million. >> yes can you describe why it's more than the actual budget? yeah, when we came back i think last time we were up here in front of the port
commission, one of the other projects came into be on our contract. that was the american's cup infrastructure improves on some of the other pier and is that is $14.7 million. so when we come back to talk about the increase for turner, we have to consider that it's on top of that 14 million although it's not for this project. so, there are contract gets increased because this amount is in there. >> okay so the change for the cruise terminal about the proposed 82 million but when we approved the 82 million didn't we take this into consideration? no phase two was really just an estimate at the time and so no work and other than the
phase two --. >> so it was an estimate yeah and so other than the phase two it gets very complex and you have up with the project a very long time and the work and phase in phase one. design work included the phase two drawings because they were developed at the same time. so, in the phase two, we are not including the design fee for new drawings. . >> okay so the additional 40 is going towards.. ? issue wish i have had of the able -- page nine. four table a she is talking
about the 39 tpt p.7 increase in turner's acts and the 49 million increase in d p contract and so 43 million total for the three contracts that has changed in the authorization. . okay so we are talk about the cruise terminal 37.000000 and so if you go back to table two on page four of your report, at the top, we have broken this down as best as we can by system. which gives you the total of $36 million. and then on top of that, there is a contingency of 10%. of such that is 3.6 million and so that should
total up to 39-point p$.7 million did you take the plaza into consideration at all during phase one? no. so the table on phase one is who of approved by contract to date ask so since we have identified funding for phase one that is all that has been approved and so the table in page six and ask what the contracts need to change but but not necessarily what the estimates have changed by does that make sense? so we are always praying successfully that the park can be funded from the joe bonds and so we have never had approved expend tours accept for the money we spend designing it and working through the b.c. b d retirements for the permanent which were not cheap,
that makes sense. we are trying we did a great job of giving everything that we know in the department but it gets confusing really fast. >> thank you and so for the design team contract and l b e goal of 15%,th that is now at 44.6% which, is absolutely wonderful but what dollar amount is that on is that on the 1.9? is that or the -- it's on the phase one dollar amount. which, is 9.9? >> and that is great. thank you. that is a wonderful wonderful achievementism have and then under of the c m g c contract. okay so c m g c is running a little bit behind our goal and we have got about 12 and-a-half% l b participation and this is based on invoices,
provided to us which lag at least 30 days behind and the fun end of project had small specialties like structural steal as we move forward we are getting into less specialized work and so our estimate for november when we get the bills and and everything we make an official l b it should be about 18 perts p%. >> you answered my question, thank you. a lot of focus on that question. you are going to be happy happy happy at the end, right kim? and then i think most of my questions have been answered but one correct this if i'm on wrong but it looks like really the changes in both of the phase one budget and also,
it was phase two, very little is actually due to change orders. is that correct? phase one is one our 10% change order allowance. >> okay that is impressive too. you were very lucky with the phase one timing and to move a couple items forward and phase two as you know the market is on fire. any other questions? this is great that you so much all in favor-aye. resolution 12 in this action, 129797 and 1298 have been approved. >> thank you. >> item 13 new business. any public comment on new business? anybody have a new business for me? yeah? no?
real quickly i know it's been a long day madame chair on this cruise terminal it has already been out the operator r rfp it's out now and due early february, i think. so what happens is the port staff and maritime they interview the different operator and is then they come back here to the board with recommendation and so we will establish a selection and panel which will include some internal staff and a lot of sternal folks based on the score of of r f q's we will come up with a selection for oral interviews all of which is over seen by the human right commission and then formerlily to your point, we will come back to the commission with a recommendation for the highest ranked firm. >> okay what i would like if you could possibly bring back two names, i think that would be good and i would like to have
them come so that the commissioners we can talk it hem and sometimes we give them one but i would like two operators that are good that we can talk too i would like to do that. okay hopefully we are going to have that many hopefully more i don't that is good i hope you have ten but when you make the recommendations i would like there to be two. >> okay i'm still holding my breath. will do is there any other new business ...? public comment is there any public comment? seeing none. to reconvene and close session. i move man where is many? do we need many? are you ready? yeah. move that

today's session. thank you mr. mayor, i'll provide the first question for today. >> mr. mayor, your march appearance between before the board of supervisors i asked you about proposition i passed by slotters in november of 2000 seven to create a office of small business to comply with 14 city departments pop operation i stated within four most the office would issue a report that analyzed the existing laws and regular blagses that basket all small business and is make recommend dayses and consolidation. you committed that this report will be completed by june of this year and as of today no nothing has been done to consolid date this and mr. mayor, i look forward to continuing to work with your administration on a wide variety of efforts to assist or small
businesses can you recommit to carrying out this mandate of prop i and when will this be forth coming. thank you for your question and the opportunity to provide and you the full board with an up date and i know how serious you are about ensuring the small business and is stream lining the action with the city. because businesses don't care whether it's a d ph, t rx or h s b, we are all one big hurdle to come and as part of my plan i made technology to cut through base businesses a top priority for me the work is well under way supervisor and it's important that it get done in a way that it's thorough and leads to improvement for at this's small business and is that will take time because we know that the plan is more important than
and action and i want to give ouch indicate on real work being date of birth to help the small businesseses. this november we launched enterprise zone web appear and it requires businesses to hail in an licks and application fee and we replace that had with an online app where businesses can apply for these credits and pie the fee on time and so now business and is manufactures and other businesses can save time while saving money at the same time. a new tool called smart pdf is being utility liesed by a majority of departments to make it easier for businesses to fill out applications online. departments such as tax and treasure and entertainment commission are now accepting online payments but the biggest task the one that i know you are speak to go supervisor which
would save an incredible amount of time for our businesses is the online business permanent portal to accomplish this i i have asked all the scene departments who permanent small business toss provide the permitting process this will facility permitting process and necessary inferring to stream line how small businesses engage with the city. the mapping and analysis of permitting date from the department has a target of completion date of the end of the fiscal year in addition, next quarter we will launch license one 23 s f this is a base online permitting tool to help businesses identify the permits they need to open this is a concept type form to a comprehensive online business portal we have a long way to go
to make registering and permitting a business online painless as a widget but that is my goal and i'm looking for to work with you on this goal. >> thank you our next question is from supervisor avalos. thank you mr. mayor for being here i generally don't read these entirely but this time i'll. i recently asked the public question to ask can you and i received a number of requests from facebook and twitter and may e-- mayor green what does the mayor proposes props do to promote a diversified economy in san francisco so the city is not simply high paid, high finance or tech jobs and low wage servants and will the mayor crash the real estate market to make san francisco afford.
again to elaborate on this the 2010 sentences showed low increase household and upper increase households finds one findings done by ted ebegans from the controllers office the economist wrote that the comiebts that create a job distribution are in the local serving sector of the economy which has largely declined in recent years and what is your plan to create wage jobs in industries to prevent the city's work class from being displaced for the newer upper increase jobs and the high-tech jobs financial and provision service cities? thank you supervisor and i'm glad to here and i join you in the effort of using social media to community with our constituent. >> let me start by saying that we have come off of the worst
economic downturn when i took office last year the unemployment rate was 9.6%. that has now changed to eight% since 2011 and that is growing at a 6.6% pace, there are still more than 32,000 unemployed san franciscoians which i find unacceptable and we must do better i want to spill investor confidence and show businesses of all sites that we can start stay here. this year we are reformed from payroll tax and i heard that previous payroll tax hurt job growth and i agreed and propyl vision e was passed this last november and because of
proposition e san francisco standards to ads more new private sector jobs and that is a huge success. i want to say supervisor that yes, the technology industry has been growing in san francisco and now includes over one thousand sen hundred companies that employed or 39,000 employees and this is something of which i am proud and i'm also proud that tech s f are training and connecting san francisco residents with diverse backgrounds to get those tech sector jobs, we will train and place over 2,000 san francisco residental in tech jobs over the next five years with our first tech s f graduating class this may. but that is not the whole story. recently economic studies have shown supervisor for every technology job created issue over four additional jobs outside of the tech field are
sustained. and a full three quarters of the city's job growth has happened outside of the technology industry. the tourism industry alone, for example, supported 71,000 jobs in the year 2011 with a payroll of over 2 million-dollar and immense jobs creators between treasure island. the cp m c rebuild and a new warriors a arena over 4,000 permanent jobs and over 15,000 construction jobs will be created and sustained and we are rebuilding the city with san franciscoians thanks to your leadership on the local higher legislation not just for public projects but also private project like the proposed a marine eye 3030 and let's not forgot the manufacturing mere in san francisco through s of may we are offering programmings
and technical assistance so that they can also be local job create ores i'm also crateful for san francisco voters who past thed housing trust fund to now allocate one $.2 billion in the next 30 years for low increase and moderate san franciscoians to house our workforce and keep families in san francisco so no, supervisor we will not crash the real estate market but invest in our 70 and people and ensure that san francisco stays as bloom berg called calls us, the best city in the in america. thanks for districts one seven and nine for their early holiday gift as well. >> thank you mayor wishing you
a happy holiday as well. >> let's go to the rest of our genera mr. court please lead i genderree i. >> student: supermember requests a discussion of a matter -- colleagues would anyone like to sever any of these items? we will call vote on items two and three, conthe consensus, supervisor farrell. >> farrell aye, supermar. kim aye. >> supervisor a loggy eye. wean easer aye. avalos aye. supervisor camp pose aye. chew eye. supervisor chu? . chu eye. supervisor cohen in. aye supervisor elsburnd -- mr. president there are 11 a
